Digital transformation firm Devoteam has kicked off 2022 in grand style, announcing that the firm has – despite the pandemic-induced disruption – managed to grow its Middle East headcount by over 30% in the 2021 calendar year.

“2021 has been a truly impressive year for Devoteam,” said Osama Ghoul, Devoteam’s group executive vice president. “Our team has grown by 30% and a total of 185 new talents across the Middle East have joined our family.”

The strong growth was felt across the firm’s client portfolio in the Middle East, industry verticals and core business units including business technology, technology, cyber, and cloud.

In the consulting space, Devoteam benefitted from strong demand for digital transformation advisory and delivery. In the technology landscape, the firm’s financials were buoyed by heightened demand for design, build, and implementation work across industry-leading cloud stacks such as AWS, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure, and other technology platforms such as Salesforce and Servicenow (Devoteam is a certified partner of these and other software vendors).

According to Ghoul, however, “our culture at Devoteam is absolutely key to our success and I have no doubt that our strong team spirit has fuelled this amazing growth.”

The addition of the 2021 class (“we are particularly happy to see more women among this year’s hires as well as a more diverse pool of talents”) has lifted Devoteam’s headcount to over 500 in the Middle East, and looking ahead, the firm has set its sights on further growth. “We are ambitious and aim to continue to grow this year and beyond and add greater value to all of our clients. Devoteam is a company that offers infinite possibilities.”

Globally, Devoteam has more than 8,000 employees working from offices in 20+ countries across Europe, the Middle East and Africa. While the global organisation has not yet unveiled its full year figures for 2021, in its latest mid-year reporting meeting the group reported 11% growth for the first six months of 2021 and a positive outlook for the second half of the year.
